New Sex Crime: Injecting People With HIV

I don't know what this world is coming to — I just read a news article about two men convicted of infecting 14 semi-conscious men at sex parties with HIV. The incidences happened in Amsterdam between January 2006 and May 2007. It's possible that these two men drugged the others with a date-rape drug before assaulting them, but that has yet to be proven. A panel of three judges concluded that one of the men repeatedly injected others with HIV in an attempt "to bring this same hurt to others."

All 14 men tested positive for HIV, but since they all took part in unprotected orgies, it can't be proven whether they were infected by the injections or by their own actions. While you'd think these two men convicted would be charged with attempted murder, they were not, since Dutch courts feel that HIV is a chronic illness, not necessarily a fatal one.

We have enough crime out there as it is, but apparently we have this kind to worry about, too. What do you think about this frightening news?
